Offering support to our charity

Our Owl Rescue and Conservation Charity who are always keen to except important kind hearted donations or gifts that can help towards our work. The Barn Owl Centre (charity number 1097410) will always continue to be strong & committed well into the future.

Our charity is small yet it works tirelessly to support Owls in the wild through endless conservation work whilst also offering a safe sanctuary to over 50 unwanted or abused captive bred Owls & Birds of Prey. Through no fault of their own, birds get been handed to us after being passed around as pets, many sadly come in mistreated.

Below is a brief write up of how donors have supported us, with every day that passes & with costs increasing, support needs to be ongoing so we can be there for the birds.

How we are funded: Our finances are receives from the generosity of the public who book into experiences & from those whop sponsor our birds. We also receive funds through nest box work & by kind donations pledged. External fundraising events & donations are a huge support too. With regards to receiving legacies or gifts in-kind in memory of someone or a loved one, this is rare for our charity because we don't have skilled people who target this area, this we have always thought to be intrusive to families who loose someone. For us to receive a legacy or a gift in-kind, we simply take a more natural approach. If a legacy is given to us, it's given 100% in kindness & good will to support the work we do.
Sanctuary & Workforce: Manual help is always greatly appreciated, all help provided comes in different ways especially as we progress to build a special kind of Centre for which is dedicate to support birds & wildlife. Facilities are always improving to include more bird aviaries, welfare areas for the birds, indoor & outdoor flying & training areas for our birds, which are important areas where we work to educate all ages of the community, this involves working with children, families, schools & groups. Education plays a key part of our work & for us, children are a very important generation of new conservationists who need to be encouraged to offer future support for Owls & Birds of Prey.
Conservation: To date we have now over 5,500 nest boxes positioned UK wide to support landowners who work with us to support nesting Barn Owls, Tawny Owls, Little Owls & Kestrels. Without the support & involvement from landowners, our conservation efforts would not be possible! With this number of boxes & more planned to be positioned, the support needed must be ongoing Any donation supporting this work will always be vital to us
Wild Rescues: With regards to wild rescued birds & their rehabilitation, this is always an ongoing task & very precious to us. The results we gain in getting injured or sick birds back to the wild is always difficult depending on the injuries sustained, in all our results are very good. To assist this work we build a number of special mobile release aviaries & erect them at selected project sites, this supports a safe & successful release scheme.

When kindly donating to our charity you can be assured that a large percentage if not all will be used to support the Centre's in-house work including the external conservation work we undertake & the care/assistance we give to wild casualties that are brought in or picked up.
